#china at the town of #xining, in the chinese province of #qinghai, the large mosque of #dongguan welcomes many believers since the population is mostly of the #muslim #faith. constructed in the 14th century, it has since been renovated and enlarged. when i was in the region on assignment for national geographic, i participated in the friday prayer which brings the quarter around the mosque to life. here, along a hallway lined with painted wood, remainders of the past, a #han beggar waits in hope of alms. text written by rachel deghati. #chinese #fervor #religion #muslim #prayer #fervor #fridayprayer #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #عكاس#رضادقتى @thephotosociety

National geographic fotoğrafçılarından @rezaphotography çektiği fotoğrafın hikayesini aktarıyor: İstanbul'da bulunduğum bir akşamdı. gökyüzü aniden yarıldı, akşam sakinliğini bozarak İstanbul'un meşgul, sıkıcı gürültüsüne bir anda son verdi. karadeniz'in ve akdeniz'in, asya'nın ve avrupa'nın bir araya gelerek oluşturduğu boğaz; bir an için, yağmur tanrılarından gelen gazap ile şaşırtıcı bir şekilde durma noktasına geldi. İstanbul şehri de bir an durdu. Şehrin iki yakasını aynı zamanda kıtaları ve doğu ile batı'yı da birbirine bağlayan İstanbul boğazı’nın dostane köprüsü, fırtına tarafından kuşatılarak kırılganlaştı. İnsanlık tarihinin kalbinde, boğaz her daim imparatorlukların önemli olaylarına sahne olmuştur: persler ve yunanlılar arasındaki çatışmalara; haçlı seferleri için doğuya doğru ilerleyen fetihe aç yollara ve osmanlıların beş yüz yıl boyunca dünyayı yönettiği topkapı sarayı’na... türkiye'deki pek çok hikayeyi dinlerken, doğu ile batı arasındaki çekişmeye paralel olarak gelişen modernleşme ve gelenek arasındaki gerilimin ülkenin kültüründe zenginleşmelere ve kırılmalara sebep olduğuna tanık oldum. metin: rachel deghati "savaş + barış" (national geographic yayınları, 2007), "reza, savaş ile barış arasında” (national geographic yayınları, 2008​ ​) #storm #night #lights #sea #bosphorusbridge #sky #picoftheday #igers#bosphorus #istanbul #turkey #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan @thephotosociety

-starfish- back in 2003 i was involved with rick smolan and david cohen's historic america 24/7 book project which documented one week in america. it was the largest such photo project since the 1930's farm security administration project which employed photographer greats like dorothea lange and walker evans. according to cbs news over 1-million images were submitted by 25,000 photographers from accross the united states. my contribution was this image at dusk of a woman relaxing in the pool of my apartment building which was directly accross the street from the old honolulu catholic cemetery. the picture ran accross two pages in the national america 24/7 book and considering how many photographers there were...frankly, it was a miracle. #travelingourplanet #travelingourplanet #lonelyplanet #life #dailylife #lensculture #ig_global_people #lensculturestreets #photographyislife #photojournalist #pictureoftheday #35mmphotography #leica #leicaambassador #travelphoto #filmphotographic #capture #photoart #streetlife #picoftheday #imageoftheday #decisivemoment #jeffwidener #honolulu #hawaii #america24/7 #swimmingpool #aerialview #inslandlife #relaxing

-on patrol- back in 1993 i was on assignment in cambodia covering the un monitored elections. the job was not without risk. nothing is more unsettling for me then having to go on military patrol. i am no hero and always avoided anything potentially requiring a band-aid. i followed these scruffy cambodia soldiers to a small village outside battambong which had been attacked by the khmer rouge a few hours earlier. usually these bandits are looking for rice or terrorized chickens and pigs. the soldier in front of me turns in the direction of distant gunfire. though these guys were armed with ak47 assault rifles, it would not have been much help against a grenade attack which happened a few weeks earlier to some dutch marine peacekeepers who were injured in the ambush. #travelingourplanet #travelingourplanet #lonelyplanet #life #dailylife #lensculture #ig_global_people #lensculturestreets #photographyislife #photojournalist #pictureoftheday #35mmphotography #leica #leicaambassador #travelphoto #filmphotographic #capture #photoart #streetlife #picoftheday #imageoftheday #decisivemoment #jeffwidener #cambodia #battambong #khmerrouge #war #guns #unelections #southeastasia

-rest stop- indonesia was one of my old haunting grounds back in the 1990's. i had a south korean photojournalist friend named choo who i would often meet by chance in remote parts of asia during major breaking news stories. a few years ago i decided to visit choo who was based in jakarta. we both had a passion for leica cameras and would often spend hours discussing our photographer heroes cartier bresson and josef koudelka. there were countless times choo and i would have our cameras, lenses and rolls of tri-x film strewn all over a hotel restaurant dining table like two school children during show and tell. on our way back from lunch in a taxi one day i made this image of a woman napping on a city bus during a red light. i used my leica m7 with a 28mm summicron lens. choo's leica m3 was blocked by his smiling wife. #travelingourplanet #travelingourplanet #lonelyplanet #life #dailylife #lensculture #ig_global_people #lensculturestreets #photographyislife #photojournalist #pictureoftheday #35mmphotography #leica #leicaambassador #travelphoto #filmphotographic #capture #photoart #streetlife #picoftheday #imageoftheday #decisivemoment #jeffwidener #jakarta #indonesia #sleeping #napping #bus

Movement #france i have always been a great reader of poetry. i was raised in the persian culture which is profoundly marked by great poets like saadi, hafez and rumi, to cite only a few among so many, both from centuries past, as well as contemporaries. they are the very breath of persian culture and society. reading poetry has enabled me to maintain a link with my identity throughout my life, but it has also helped sustain me through many dark hours in my time as a witness of man’s inhumanity to man. the sufi poet rumi evokes the state of trance. i wanted to create an image of this form of osmosis between thought, beauty and the body – all this is translated into the freedom and grace of movement. the iranian sufi dancer shahrokh meskhin is a master of this type of transcendence. text written by rachel deghati. published in "l'envol, la conférence des oiseaux" (democratic books publishing, 2001).#dance #dancer #danceislife #poetry #rumi #rumilove #movement #shahrokhmeshkinghalam #iranian_gram #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

#egypt, #cairo while on assignment for the national geographic magazine in the city of cairo, i was also covering the lively life by night of the city. make-believe suits the temper of cairo, whose manners and customs flavor the fables in arabian nights. "see the woman with the body of a snake" cries a barber at a street fair in a cairo slum. at a five-star hotel the props for a shoeshine include a king tutankhamun-style throne. text written by rachel deghati. #egyptian #night #man #tourism #show #lively #custom #woman #head #snake #fable #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza​ #rezaphoto #rezadeghati​ #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس@thephotosociety

The gaze of childhood #france at the beginning of their lives, the awakening senses of children lead them to experiment and tackle the most improbable obstacles. i love the intensity and depth with which they often perceive things and people. on this day, in the abandonment of the heat of the summer, our daughter djanan suddenly froze, forgetting the apple she had been devouring eagerly, her gaze fixed for a long period, as if hypnotized by a scene. the minutes stretched out as i observed her drinking in what she saw, hesitating between reminiscence and discovery. text written by rachel deghati. #french #littlegirl #cute ##cuteness #daughter #daughterlove #portrait #goodmoment #goodtime #childhood #happykid#picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety

Encounters #ethiopia we made up a rather motley crew: six youths from six different continents, twenty-four young ethiopians – some orphans, some from disadvantaged backgrounds – and assistants from unicef. the first group were the winners of an international photography contest launched by unicef and sony and coordinated by the world photography association. the theme was the rights of children, and i was leading it, along with david beckham. the winners won the chance to participate in one of my workshops, conducted in ethiopia, along with twenty-four young ethiopians who had been presented with cameras. our happy group set off, trying to share moments that would build bridges between cultures, social classes and destinies. all of them shared this apprenticeship in photography and their view of the world around them. in a little village with houses made of beaten earth, natural light illuminates this girl’s face and intensifies the lively colors of her clothes and the rooster in her hands, transforming her into a princess full of grace, immortalized by these photographers in training. text written by rachel deghati. #portrait #girl #unicef #ethiopian #ethiopiangirl #unicef #photographyworkshop #education #hope #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى عكاس @thephotosociety
